Daniel Pipes describes his Borking. Now that his appointment is secure, his opponents should prepare to be Piped.

I hope they've stocked up on K-Y, for their sakes.

Now, now. Don't make Robert Bork out to be a hero. He's just a Cox-sacker.
Seriously, if he'd resigned his post after firing Archibald Cox in 1973, I'd have had some respect for him.

Daniel Pipes on the board of the U.S. Institute for Peace?

Next thing you'll be telling me that Henry Kissinger has won the Nobel Peace Prize.

As Tom Lehrer said on that occasion: "It was at that moment that satire died. There was nothing more to say after that."

Its about time he got nominated, hes truly deserving of it.

Actually, considering prior winners of the Nobel Peace Prize like Arafat, and considering that the Peace Prize was named after the man who patented dynamite, Kissinger would be in fine company.

Personally, I think Pipes is an excellent choice, precisely because his hawkish positions are exactly what I believe are necessary to bring lasting peace to the Middle East.
